The Dbacks are close to hiring Kevin Towers

6 Comments

We heard the other day that the Diamondbacks are really interested in hiring Kevin Towers to run the club. Now Peter Gammons is reporting that a deal between Towers and the club is in place, but that it can’t be announced until “the process” is complete. Whatever that means.

Most interesting thing about Gammons’ tweet is his sourcing: “Three GMs insist . . .”  That could be true, but I wonder how that sort of information circulates. Do the GMs — current and past — all chat about this online? Is there a GM union hall someplace where Towers is sitting next to the keg, telling anyone who listen that he latched on with Arizona?

“That’s great, Kevin. Now pay your back dues, OK?”
